Some help for DNS questions (Two nameserver)


I don't see (on manuals or anything (link on manual don't work,com_openwiki/Itemid,48/id,dns...) how to modify setup of Virtualmin Pro, for this question:

I'use two nameservers on same machine. dns1 and dns2

After create any domain, Virtualmin create a file for zone but only one nameserver, dns1, like this:

@ IN SOA ( 1199558399 10800 3600 604800 38400 ) @ IN NS IN A XXX.XX.XX.XX

How can put by default @ IN NS @ IN NS

A nice day

THe link describes setting up a remote slave server.....on another machine.

You would need to run two copies of BIND at the same time on the same machine with different IPs to do what you ask and I'm not even sure it's possible anymore.

But the big question is, WHY would you want to run your backup DNS on the machine that it's supposed to back up????? You run your backup DNS on another machine so that you still have DNS if the primary breaks. In fact ICAAN calls for the backup DNS to be in a geographically different location, but who of us can maintain a remote location?

hope that helps,
